Our lives are made in these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate

It is an overplayed cliché. But when Rev Run said it on Oprah, aku terkesan. "Instead of mourning over your losses, be thankful for what you have".

Instead of being irritated by sikap sesetengah manusia yang menjengkelkan, be thankful for sikap manusia lain yang menyenangkan.

Instead of being spiteful about the masalah gaji, be thankful for the wonderful working environment and the (somewhat) satisfying job.

Instead of grieving tak habis2 about the one ‘lost’ friend (dia bukan ingat lu pun AM), be thankful for the many many good ones around.

Instead of whining about being traumatic with lampu brek and about Kiki yang kini cacat kerana besi2 depannya telah bengkang-bengkok, be thankful for being alive and healthy (walaupun mengalami cramp here and there).

There’s this blogger,
Lolyta. She does this inspiring ritual she calls Thankful Tuesday, di mana dia akan menyenaraikan perkara2 yang membuat dia bersyukur, setiap Selasa. Good for the soul, don’t you think so?

A lot of things to be thankful for. But let me leave that between me and Allah. Let us all be thankful today. Alhamdulillah.
